Cancun, Q.R. – A fine has been imposed on Dreams Sands in Cancun for causing environmental damage.
The fine was administered to the hotel by the Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection (PROFEPA) in Quintana Roo. Dreams Sands Cancun Resort & Spa, located at kilometer 8.5 of the Cancun Hotel Zone, was issued a fine of 876,000 peso for carrying out work not authorized by the Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT).
Local government officials found the hotel placing numerous oversize sand-filled sacks with ropes and poles in a large area that resulted in serious coastal environmental damage. The hotel was ordered to immediately stop work and restore the site to its original state.
